Revolver goes Upside Down
by Naman Ramachandran
23/02/2011 - Revolver Entertainment is all set to release feature documentary Upside Down across the UK in April. Produced and directed by Danny O’Connor, the film charts the inside story of Alan McGee’s Creation Records, the UK’s most successful independent record company.
From Oasis and Primal Scream to the Jesus and Mary Chain and the Super Furry Animals, in-depth interviews with McGee and his canon of top British musicians, Upside Down follows the label’s humble beginnings in Glasgow, drug dependency and alcoholism, to the dining room of Tony Blair’s term at Number 10.
Revolver’s Justin Marciano said, “Creation Records sold literally millions of records during its heyday and we are excited to be able to unfurl this fully authorised on-screen biography of its journey from a Glasgow bedroom into the hands of almost every teenager in Britain by 1990.”
Revolver’s recent releases include Banksy’s BAFTA and Oscar nominated Exit Through the Gift Shop [trailer], Cary Fukunaga’s Sin Nombre, Pascal Chaumeil’s Heartbreaker [trailer] and Srdjan Spasojevic’s controversial A Serbian Film.
Adam Deacon’s Anuvahood, by Revolver’s production arm Gunslinger, is due a March release.
